This Hareline fly-tying fur is a high-quality, synthetic fly-tying material that's perfect for creating different types of flies.

Which types of flies are Extra Select Craft Fur good for?
Hareline's fur is ideal for tying baitfish patterns such as Clouser minnows because it's resistant to water absorption, ensuring the fly remains lightweight and can float on the surface. Its fine and soft fibers also create a pulsating motion in the water that closely resembles that of a real baitfish.
Craft fur fly tying is also ideal for creating shrimp and crab patterns. The fibers can be trimmed to different lengths and layered to mimic the look of legs or antennae. The material can also be used for tying deceivers, which are larger baitfish patterns that work well for predatory fish species. It can also be used with other materials like Rabbit Fur Strips, 1/8" and Barred Rabbit Fur Strips, 1/8" for unique patterns.
